In response to the killing of George Floyd, Mayor Snider challenged the entire Tigard community to join him on a journey to:
- Eliminate institutional racism and ensure equity within all city operations and structures
- Eliminate institutional racism and ensure equity within the Tigard community
- Improve the lived experience of all persons of color in Tigard such that everyone enjoys the same safety and privilege.
The creation of a Transformation Commission was one of the ideas that grew from community input and Council discussion. After countless hours of refining a proposal, it's time to make sure that the draft Transformation Commission aligns with community expectations.
